This package needs to be "synced" with the boost version in extra/boost, please don't mark this package as outdated by checking the latest version.

Last compatible version: https://github.com/boostorg/build/blob/boost-1.75.0/doc/src/history.adoc

From version 1.76.0 boost-build is back in the extra/boost package, I'm leaving this package here for a while if users intend to use with older versions of boost.

Thank you

@marcs, thanks for your reply. I found out I could indeed uninstall it and go with just extra/boost and extra/boost-libs without any problems. It's obviously up for you to decide if this package should remain marked out-of-date. Thank you a lot for taking care of the package so far!

@awagner with the latest version of boost (1.76.0), I think they finally added back boost-build in the extra/boost package, that's the reason of the package conflicting with extra/boost. I don't think this package is necessary with version 1.76.0 and above but it can still be used with versions of boost prior of 1.76.0.

There's boost version 1.76 now in extra and I have to exclude it from updating because there's conflicting files. Is an update of this package necessary? Otherwise, can you explain what I am supposed to do in order to "sync" with extra/boost? Thank you.

I'm not absolutely sure how this boost packages should be split, I think that extra/boost-libs is fine.

I think you are right, extra/boost package contains b2 and bjam, but doesn't contain jam files, so it can be considered as a corrupted package, because b2 executable needs this files to work correctly.

jehelset commented on 2020-03-11 21:34

i don't think b2 should be in the boost package if it doesn't ship the .jam-files.

the binaries should be taken out of extras/boost, or it should also contain the .jam-files.

nothing marcs can do about it though.

great asap support, thank you, everything is ok now

rolled back to 4.0.1 to keep consistency with extra/boost

+1

But Boost.Build engine distributed in extra/boost package is at v4.0.1, so you get this warning, which is not good and can lead to hard to catch problems:

warning: mismatched versions of Boost.Build engine and core
warning: Boost.Build engine (b2) is 4.0.1
warning: Boost.Build core (at /usr/share/boost-build/src) is 4.1-git

This versions should match, you can check correct boost build version every time at:
